Earlier this summer I shared this log cabin top and mentioned that I wanted to make checkerboard borders - and here is my progress, so far! I keep a little stack of these strips/squares next to my machine and every time I sit down, I try to zip a few through. The other day I realized that I just might have enough pieced together so I checked - almost! The idea is a solid red border (about 3.5"), checkerboard border, skinny red border - send to long arm quilter!
I really don't like to do borders! I love to make blocks because they are smaller units, but when it comes to piecing the blocks into rows and adding borders... sigh! I've been rotating my projects around and now, since I haven't started anything new, I have almost all of them up to the border stage. OK, I guess I have a few borders to plow through and then the tops will be done, and then I can start something new!
